Hello! I am a classically trained vocalist and percussionist, with a BA in Music, specializing in Education and Theory. I have taught band, choir, orchestra and piano in high school and middle school. I have also done Music Directing with kids aged 7-14 for various musicals and have taught elementary students aged 4-9, so I am ready for whatever you've got! I have also appeared on stage in various settings including opera, musical theater, solo work and even the occasional karaoke night. I am willing to work with your schedule and offer scholarships to those who are willing to earn them!
I created and taught a music program for pre-k through second grade for each and every student in those grades in the district, focusing on instilling a love of and interest in music so, when able, the kids would insist on participating in music at higher levels.+ Read More
I took notes, headed sectionals, acted as manager and rehearsal conducted for the Symphony Silicon Valley Chorale under the baton of Maestra Elena Sharkova.
I did the vocal directing for three shows and two rounds of "camp" (6-10 weeks of intensive weekly classes) for students aged 7-14.
I taught beginning and advanced band and strings, choir, and general music for grades 6-8. I also taught jazz band and a few other classes on my own time.
I taught band, choir and piano to students 9-12. This included competitive marching band and percussion groups.
I have earned my clear credential through the State of California, indicating that I have not only completed the studies necessary to complete the credential, but have also completed the auxiliary training and studies to be credentialed for life.
